"If you are going to go ultra light and cover a lot of ground fast, you need a pair a poles that can keep up. The Black Diamond Ultra Distance Trekking Poles can do just that if not make you faster. The entire Ultra Distance line is solid, but these are the best by far. They are the lightest I have ever used, and I can get them to extend the full length with one hand, which can make you look BA on the trail. Because there are no flick locks or twist locks to adjust, there is practically no field maintenance and as long as you get the size you need, they will always be the right height."
